Psychiatric unit for seniors could open
Ventura County Star

A 20-bed psychiatric unit for seniors with serious mental illness could open next year in Ventura, officials said.

The project is in the early stages but was well received by the Ventura County Mental Health Board on Monday. The county has lacked such a unit since 2008, when an inpatient program closed at Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center in Thousand Oaks for financial reasons.
